This chart is a transcription of the Billy Byers chart as performed by Frank Sinatra backed by Woody Herman at Madison Square Garden in 1974. The opening is thunderingly brassy and establishes a great contrast to the quiet start of the vocal. The first vocal chorus is backed mainly by Saxes and Trombone licks, but builds in intensity to the half-step modulation. From here the arrangement powers its way to the finish line, and swings like crazy all the way. The vocal keys are Bb and B. This is timeless and classic Sinatra. Trumpets 1-4: D6, C6, A5, Ab5 Trombones 1-4: C5, G#4, F#4, D4 Vocal Key: Bb, B Male Vocal Bb2 - F#4 (12 steps).
